This past year has seen this forum turn to ass.
Off Topic has been ass for years.
The rest of the forum is fine.
Different strokes and all.
so then maybe leave off topic alone… just saying.
Hard to argue things weren’t more enjoyable here when off topic was unmoderated and we were allowed to have silly fun threads without fear of an admin locking them for seemingly no reason other than he can’t handle some joking criticism.
Unmoderated Off Topic was a caustic shithole that turned new members away.
You guys lived and breathed it for so long that you didn’t see it.
Right, moderated off topic is now incredibly inviting to new members.
The only “new member” who’s had difficulty recently is Collipso, and it should be obvious why.
You can point the finger at me all you want; it doesn’t erase the fact that for years you guys ran Off Topic like it was your private club and membership was based on your approval. That ended a while back and some of you have been salty ever since.
I actually wasn’t much of a frequent poster in off topic until around the time it became moderated, but when I was new here I always appreciated the goofiness that populated the section. So you lumping me in with this nefarious “you guys” generalization is not just condescending, but inaccurate. Not to mention most of the “hazing” you’re talking about was limited to the myspleen thread, which you locked anyway. But you’re free to make up whatever you like to justify your reasoning, it’s your site of course.
